Loving My Skin

My skin was beautiful when I was a teenager. My skin didn’t breakout and I never worried about being taunted about acne.

But now after having three kids and a deadly combination of pregnancy and postpartum hormones, my skin looks like it belongs to a 16-year-old girl. My forehead has a glow to it that I could do without. And apparently my pores decided to open up and swallow everything floating in the air. GROSS!

I am taking action! No more oily, clogged skin for me.

Loving my skin

Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash – I love this exfoliating scrub for my face! It’s gentle enough to use everyday on my skin and it does a great job of scrubbing away all impurities.

Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System – Sometimes your skin needs a little help to get it extra clean. I’ve thought about purchasing the more expensive brushes, but I have been truly happy using this Olay Pro-X brush.  There’s a major difference with my skin on the days I use my cleansing brush and on the days I forget to. This brush is a great investment.

Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 – A good benzoyl peroxide treatment is a godsend. I stayed away from it while I was pregnant, but now I don’t ever skip using it. I’ve tried everything to remove the nasty blackheads that decided to stick around on my nose. This is the best product I have found to dry up the excess oil plaguing my skin. This product really dries out your skin and I do not recommend using it if you do not have oily skin.

Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control Triple Action Toner – This toner does an excellent job of cleansing my skin. It does a fantastic job of keeping my forehead from glowing all day long. My forehead is no longer a bright spotlight shinning wherever I go.

Formula 10.0.6 Seriously Shine Free Moisturizer – Because so many of the products I use dry out the excess oil my skin produces, it it is important to keep my skin moisturized. An oil-free moisturizer is just what my skin needs. Formula 10.0.6 Seriously Shine Free Moisturizer gives my skin the right amount of moisture without any added oil. 

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion – This little gem is fantastic at drying out your pimples overnight. At the first sign of a pimple, I cover the enemy zit with this lotion overnight and the next day the pimple is either gone or no longer red, swollen and it is whitehead free. Truly an amazing product!

Do you have a favorite skincare product? Why would you tell other people to use it?
